Re: Have you seen this boat?

Hi Tim,

This may not be the boat you saw in Canada, but it has a certian charm and could be a good camp cruiser. The design is by John Watkinson, the fellow who made the Drascombe Luggers so popular in England. This design is Watkinson's Drascombe Peter Boat shaped for glued-seam lap construction in plywood.

Particulars: 19' 9" LOA, LWL 17' 1", Beam 6' 8", Draft Board Up 10", Draft Board Down 4', Displacement 1,280 Lbs. There is a Gunter Rigged Version with 195 Sq. Ft. of Sail (with a lovely curved gaff) and a Lug Yawl Version (shown here) with 175 Sq. Ft. of Sail Area. She sleeps two under the 'hard' cabin top with room for a Galley Area and a Head just aft of the V-Berths. She has a bridgedeck and a decent Cockpit that can be made self-draining.

All in all a tidy little ship with double ended good looks. Plans can be purchased through WoodenBoat magazine.
